Jemaa el Fna is the main medina square. Here orange juice stands line the edges, markets pop up and street performers fill the gaps. Once the sun goes down the restaurant stands spring up, with lamps strung from the metal frames, touts call you in off the square as you make your way through to find a meal. We started most nights with a stop at a soup stall which served bowls of hot Moroccan soup for a mere 3MDh, which my boyfriend wolfed down. The boy loves soup. We also decided to try a portion of the Gauteau, which I’m fairly certain means cake in french, but they looked more like tentacles from a squid. After my boyfriend had finished his soup, we would normally head off to another stall to have a proper meal, this normally meant kebabs, bread and sauce and possibly cous cous. Once fed and watered we would then take our time to wander around the square and watch some of the performances going on, though from a distance as I saw several tourists have a monkey thrown onto their shoulder and sometimes even snakes. I wasn’t able to get many photos of the square as the performers would also ask for money if they saw a camera glance in their direction. But here are a few photos of the square that I was able to get.
